Spicy Hawaiian Chicken

   I love going to our local Farmers Market. This last Saturday I went with a dear friend and our kids got to experience shopping local. This particular vendor is a favorite of mine. My honey, lemon jelly (which I’ve used for chicken tenders) and now this new jam! Packs a punch on its own and adds terrific flavor to chicken. The kids loved it! To add extra spice, I added the jam to the chicken right after it was out of skillet. 
 Spicy Hawaiian Chicken:

Chicken breasts

Hawaiian jam (a Hawaiian glaze will work just as good)

1tsp corn starch

1/4 cup hot water

1tbsp oil


Mix corn starch and hot water until blended. Add jam, mix well.

Heat 1 tbsp oil in skillet over medium heat. Coat chicken with jam mix. Add to skillet and top with remaining mix. Cook on medium-high until chicken is cooked through. 

Serve with your favorite sides!   
I served ours with orange bell peppers, sautéed in the remaining glaze, pineapple chunks, black beans and yellow rice, and this wonderful blend of Thai style veggies by Green Giant.
